Women & Their Work serves as a catalyst for new ideas in contemporary art. Our mission is to foster the artistic growth of women visual and performing artists by encouraging them to take creative risks and make new, adventurous work. Since 1978, we have created significant opportunities for artists and audiences to experience contemporary art through ambitious exhibitions, commissions of new work, performances and programs that inform audiences of all ages. Through these programs, we seek to develop, educate and sustain audiences for the art of our time.
Known for our pioneering spirit, and embrace of artistic innovation, Women & Their Work presents over 50 events a year. Our goal is to enrich and diversify the cultural ecosystem of Austin, of Texas, of the United States and beyond. Women & Their Work reviews proposals from performing artists throughout the year in dance, music, theater, spoken word, multimedia work and performance art usually scheduling for the following year. We prefer that the dominant artistic voice be that of a woman; however, all performers need not be female to be presented here. W&TW organizes ongoing exhibitions in its gallery and presents performances in spaces throughout Austin.
